Can you any classic RPGs that were released on Windows? Baldur's Gate, Divine Divinity and Fallout are some of the classic role playing games that I grew up with. I have never played any of the Icewind Dale games(yes I'm aware that there is more than one game) until recently when I read an 12 year old video magazine there was a review of the game. It got me curious of trying it out. So I've searched for, played it and couldn't stop. It was that amazing! However, I have noticed that Icewind Dale has borrowed a few elements from Baldur's Gate, but I cannot consider it a ripoff. The story of the game starts of in a town called Easthaven, where your party rest in tavern. The town's leader, Hrothgar, who is by the way voiced by Jim Cummings, the man who voice Scar in The Lion King, invites your party party to take part in an expedition to the town of Kuldahar, which has recently sent word of strange happenings. On the road to Kuldahar, the group is ambushed by frost giants, who cause an avalanche. And this is just the beginning of the story. As you progress the story gets more and more interesting and makes you play an extra hour or two just to find what might happen next. The only I have noticed that has been borrowed from Baldur's Gate is the strategic pause, where you pause the game to think of your actions before you do them. It's actually a good idea to have this feature in as many RPGs as possible, because it is very helpful and prevents you from making bad decisions in combat. When engaged in a dialogue, you sometimes have dialogue options, however I have not felt any differences. Maybe I need to replay the game and analyse a bit more to see if I'm right or wrong. The music and voice acting are superb in this game.In conclusion, Icewind Dale, in my opinion, is one of the best RPGs, besides the ones that I have mentioned above, and I recommend it to anyone who loves role playing games. It's a must-have!
